Host: 
Date: 
Thursday, April 25, 2013 - 11:00am

Inquiry welcomes back COURT CARNEY, Assistant Professor of History at Stephen F. Austin State University. His latest book is a fascinating history of jazz, race and media titled CUTTIN’ UP: HOW EARLY JAZZ GOT AMERICA’S EAR. Tonight, in part two of our conversation about his book,  we talk about the jazz scene in Los Angeles in the 1920s and 30s, who were the movers and shakers, and how they figure into the larger history of jazz. We also talk about jazz in the early days of film, silents and talkies. If you are interested in the history of jazz, do not miss this show.
